I'm granted one year multiple-entry Schengen business visa, which I got in Swedish embassy in Kiev, Ukraine. I've already visited Sweden and stayed there for about 4 weeks.

I'm planning to visit Estonia soon for tourism purposes and would like to know if it is okay to travel as a tourist with business visa?

You are Ukrainian citizen, correct? – mindcorrosive Jan 28 '13 at 9:32
Yes, exactly. Perhaps, this may be relevant: I've already had tourist and business Schengen visas. – Volodymyr M. Jan 28 '13 at 9:37

I assume you have Schengen Visa Type (C), which is valid for short stay for:

  • Tourist
  • Business

You can use your visa as a tourist, there are no separate Schengen visas for business and tourists.

Most likely you are right, this is type C visa. I'll check it when I'll get home. – Volodymyr M. Jan 28 '13 at 10:18
